SASI Shopping for the New Year

January 1st, 2009

june-card-close-up-jami-custom-2.jpgIt’s time!  It’s time!!!  The new Stamp a Sweet Impression release is now available for your shopping and stamping pleasure!  You need to go to Taylor’s blog first to get all the detailed info and then you can head over to Taylored Expressions The Store to shop your little heart out!  Taylor has put together some awesome Bundle deals that are available through this weekend only. 

Tonight the entire Bakers Dozen has more samples to share.  The one stamp set we have not yet really talked about is A Year of Sweet Sentiments.  I LOVE sentiments and I LOVE this set.  This is by far THE most versatile sentiment set I have ever seen and what an incredible value.  With 30 year-round sentiments you pay less than .75 per stamp.  And remember that’s deeply etched pink RUBBER already on EZ-Mount coming to you on a sturdy 3-ring panel with a full index on one side.  You simply choose a sentiment, slap it on an acrylic block and it will stamp like a dream!


The sentiments in this set were specially chosen to coordinate with all of the images in A Year of Sweets 1, 2, and 3 to make adorable cards and scrapbook pages for occassions year-round, but these sentiments will also work fantastically with lots of images you already own.  And check out the cute fonts!  Oh and many of them work well with punches like Word Window and SU ovals!  Ok so is it weird that I sometimes get more excited about sentiments than image sets?  I just love having the perfect saying to really *make* a card!

For my sample today I chose one of several sentiments that works well with the June image from A Year of Sweets 2 (the June picnic is my very favorite image of all 12 – what’s yours?)


This card is 6-1/2 x 3-3/8 to fit inside an SU small open ended envelope.  This is a fun size card to work with and if you ever have to mail a check to a friend this is just right.  All the cardstock and patterned paper, as well as the heart brad and Starfire glitter used here are from the Valentine Key Ingredients.  The image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto TE’s new Choice Snow White cardstock and colored with the Copics in this photo.june-card-copics-custom.jpg

I didn’t check my full Copic chart for all the best matches to Key Ingredients, but I did check the chart for the approximately 60 Copics I own and these worked well for my scene.

The flower embellishment to the right side of the card (close-up seen at the top of this post) was created by punching the flower out of one of the KI dp sheets with a circle punch and putting it on the back of an Amuse scallop circle clear sticker.  Then Starfire glitter was adhered to the sticky scallops not covered by the paper (I learned this trick from stampin royalty JulieHRR).  That piece was then glued to a square of the dp layered over a square of red cardstock.  Some Zva pink crystals finished it off.  The main image was cut and embossed with a Nesties rectangle and layered onto a scalloped rectangle where I added more Starfire glitter with a Sakura Quickie Glue Pen.

Tonight’s samples are somewhat of a free-for-all so there’s just no telling what the rest of the Bakers Dozen has in store for us…I’m off to see for myself…wanna come?
